Kickstarters Program

Kickstarters is designed for boys and girls born between 01/01/2016 and 06/30/2017.

Our program draws on the research-based principles outlined by US Soccer. Players develop skills while playing games that require each of them to have a ball at their feet for most of the training sessions, and more touches on the ball = more skill development!

Kickstarters features:

  • Flexible practice times making it easier to fit your schedule
  • Licensed Professional Trainers
  • Standardized Age Appropriate Curriculum and Training Methodology
  • Focus on Individual Skill Development (while having fun)
  • Parent Participation opportunities

 

Due to current COVID-19 regulations we are uncertain if we can offer a Spring program like we have done in the past. While following all local and state guidelines, this season we will be offering camp sessions where players will have training with a professional trainer. With most schools in distance learning, this will be a great way for kids to get outside, socialize (at a safe distance), and get some exercise in.

Soccer ability is NOT a requirement for this program; we will make it fun and suitable for all levels. To comply with all local, and state COVID guidelines, we cannot have traditional games or scrimmages and there are also a few restrictions that will limit us to the number of participants we can take. Space will be limited!

Camp sessions have not been finalized yet, but please check back soon for updates!

 

What procedures will you take to make sure my kid(s) is safe?

We have an extensive overview of the guidelines and requirements to make this camp safe for all players and Trainers. These guidelines were sent to the city and county and are approved.

 

What exactly will my kid(s) be doing during this camp?

For the younger players, Our Qualified Trainer will be working with the players to create a high energy environment and have lots of fun while challenging players with different ball manipulation skills, dribbling and competitions each day. For the older players, the Qualified Trainer will be working through different skills to help develop players’ ball mastery and overall fitness.
